Over at Facebook, lots and lots of people changed their profile images to equal signs in support of marriage equality.
I don’t change my profile picture for other weeks I believe in, so I refuse to do it for this. But I love the show of support. It’s important. I’m just not sheepish enough to include myself.
But then I’m a spoiled brat. I work with my wife every day. And lately, I work literally beside her.
I’d have it no other way, and I strongly encourage it for others.
I don’t believe in heaven or hell. This is all I’ve got. I married Tina, because I wanted to spend my life with her. And I’ll be damned if the time I spend with her is in the hours we’re not at some lame job.
Lots of people get married and hide behind the idea that they have eternity to love their spouse. Why make your living slaving for the man … for what? So somebody else can get rich while you hope to spend some time with your loved one after retirement?
And why then?
I want now to be that time. That way my spouse isn’t a fucking stranger when I’m 65.
I hope my believing friends get behind this marriage equality thing. Hell, I hope they get behind the “spend as much time with your spouse thing”.
I sincerely wish that the bible didn’t have those parts about God punishing entire cities or countries because of their lifestyles. When it comes down to it, if those parts weren’t in there, believing folks wouldn’t give two shits about what their neighbors do in their bedrooms.
Jesus didn’t get two poops about that, so why should anybody?
So raise your glasses to marriage … no matter if you prefer the company of men or women. Get married. Have a good life. Change your kids diapers and later your spouse’s.
This is it, kids. Let’s live it like it is anyway. Give that a whirl.
Take it from me.
It’s a blast.
